Thunder Buttress Rock Climbing
Near the top photo by Mike Turner
Section of Beauty Mountain with a number of famous sport (Concertina, Stabat Mater, Gun Club) and trad routes (Super Crack, Mushrooms, Right Son of Thunder). Usually a good choice for those who want to avoid the crowds. Just like Endless, it is sunny and hot in mid day.
Walk along the cliff for about 20-30 minutes until the trail goes through rocky area under a huge roof. Just past the roof there is a large boulder which forms a cave enclosed on the left with a vertical orange face (Gun Club). The Thunder Buttress area starts here.
